Château Tour Baladoz 2011 - Saint-Emilion Grand Cru


Château Tour Baladoz is a lovely and typical Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, property of the Shepper family - also owner of Château Haut Breton Larigaudière in Margaux. The blend is dominated by merlot, making it a round and fruity red with notes of spring flowers and a nice wooden touch. The 2011 vintage has had time to assimilate its 18 months in oak barrels and with its well-integrated tannins, it is perfect to dink now.

Bronze Medal Decanter World Wine Awards

Bronze Medal at Decanter World Wine Awards "An enduring nose of cedar and cassis leading to a ripe plum and dark berry palate. Wonderful concentration with a hint of mocha on the finish."

Wine Enthusiast

90/100 "With considerable new wood flavors, this is a ripely opulent wine. It has weight, rich tannins, a smooth surface as its skims over the black fruits. The acidity, sweet black plum jelly, both give a warm, ripe character to the wine."

Gilbert & Gaillard

88/100 "Beautiful garnet colour. Smoky and woody nose on a background of jammy fruit (cherry, redcurrant, blackcurrant). Classy and straight palate. The oak supports nicely the fruit. The tannins are melting. A true and honest Saint-Emilion, with the qualities that matter."
